Extreme Measures


Last updated 9/14/2020 at 3:38pm

Recently, two men in separate locations presented with mental health issues. They struggled with police, who shot and killed both of them.

I wonder what training law enforcement has to handle people in psychiatric panic. To me, death seems like an inappropriate solution, and irreversible as well.

One of the men ran naked up the street in sleet. Was there a better way to restrain this individual in a non-lethal way?

I, too, have a psychiatric situation, and so I have an affinity for these gentlemen. Why would anyone suffering with mental illness be treated this way in the 21st century?
